Treeing Walker History

I love all breeds of hounds... I've just always hunted walkers. Here's a cool piece of information I read about the Walker breed. They came from a Black and Tan!!!I read this on Wikipedia.

The Treeing Walker Coonhound was developed in the Colonial era from crosses of English Foxhounds. Two breeders from Kentucky, John W. Walker and George Washington Maupin, are given credit for the breed's initial development.[1] The dogs they bred were referred to as Walker Hounds, and were used to hunt raccoons. In the 1800s, a stolen black and tan dog named Tennessee Lead was crossed into the Walker Hound. Tennessee Lead was of unknown origin, but he greatly influenced the Walker.

...."Wilkes' Brooke".... (Sackett Jr bred)
